I always felt like Tragedy had a greater influence on Nas' MCing pre-1996 than Rakim... or any other rapper for that matter. Laid-back, intelligent streetpoetics

That being said, I don't think Illmatic mirrors Intelligent Hoodlum to that degree.

side note: I dont understand you use "da" instead of "the". I swear, it throws da whole balance of your sentences off.

i see too much similarity to just pass it off as erroneous....just like da example stated above..
